Belief: Spending Money at Holiday Time

How did it happen that one of the traditions of the holidays became over-spending?  When in our history did this become the case?  Why is it that we are seeing car commercials with large bows on the cars?  Isn’t it rather silly to think that we don’t naturally make such a significant purchase at the most appropriate time in our lives rather than due to a holiday spending spree? 

Perhaps the car companies (and all of the other advertisers) know something about us that we do not know.  Perhaps the advertisers are being a direct mirror to this belief that many of us hold about spending and the holidays.

If you are finding yourself getting anxious that you have not spent enough; that you have not purchased large enough gifts; that your gifts will pale in comparison to others, then I ask you to stop for just a moment….take a deep breath…and remember that this is a season of peace and good will.  This was never intended to be a season of ‘keeping up with the Jones’; of overspending to create a challenging beginning to the new year; and to worry that your offerings are not enough.

Believe that you are perfectly capable of having a wonderful holiday season with only your personality and smile; your good will and joy; and then leave the gift giving process to those who do not have faith in their own value and worth

How would you like to consider shifting some of your long-held  beliefs?
